Today, internationally renowned singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette celebrates her birthday. Nearly two decades ago, she released her jampacked greatest hits CD, The Collection, which will see its vinyl debut this summer.
THE COLLECTION will be available on August 25 as a 2-LP on black vinyl. Pre-order HERE. A transparent grape-vinyl version will be available the same day exclusively from HMV, as well as your local Record Store Day indie retailer.
THE COLLECTION covers the seven-time Grammy® Award-winner’s career between 1995 and 2005, when the Canadian popstar first broke out in the States. It includes a handful of Morissette’s well- known singles, several soundtrack selections, and her performance of Seal’s hit “Crazy,” which debuted on THE COLLECTION in 2005.
Five songs from her #1 album, Jagged Little Pill (1995), appear on the set, including the smash singles “You Oughta Know,” “Ironic,” and “You Learn.” The album catapulted Morissette to global stardom, earning her five Grammy® awards, including Album of the Year. The record was certified 16x platinum, selling over 33 million copies worldwide. It is the 16 th best-selling album of all time in the U.S. and the third best-selling album by a female artist.
Morissette returned in 1998 with the triple-platinum album Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie, which is represented on THE COLLECTION by a trio of songs, including the Top 20 hit “Thank You.” “Hands Clean” from her 2002 platinum album, Under Rug Swept, is featured along with “Eight Easy Steps” from 2004’s So-Called Chaos.
Several songs on THE COLLECTION weren’t released on Morissette’s studio albums, like “Princes Familiar” from her 1999 gold-certified MTV Unplugged album and “Sister Blister” from the 2002 compilation Feast on Scraps. A few of the singer’s soundtrack contributions are featured here, including “Still” from Kevin Smith’s 1999 film, Dogma, where Morissette played the role of God.
